PLASTICGOD’S “Make out Teepee”
Working under the pseudonym PLASTICGOD, internationally known Los Angeles pop artist Doug Murphy has established himself as a relentless pop culture manipulator and multiples revivalist. The clean, minimalist forms of LEGO-like heads and figures become a mold in which Plasticgod forces the faces and bodies of an ever expanding pantheon of pop icons. Making works that drip with saccharine colours and simple shapes that reduce the famous and infamous to their most basic visual identifiers, his fixation surges forth with a relentless mercantile fury, reflective of his chosen subjects
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Plasticgod was originally commissioned to design the teepee for a charity event for MALIBU NATIVE. Inspired by the native Indian theme and the band name NEON INDIAN, he combined these visual ideas with what was currently trending in art and design to create his distinct eye popping graphics. Because of it’s size, only 2-3 people can fit inside of the teepee at a time so it was appropriately dubbed “Make Out Teepee”.
